June 21, 2010 – Dierks Bentley: Doing It His Way

Dierks Bentley is taking his music in a new direction with his new bluegrass-flavored album, Up on the Ridge. Dierks talks with Country Weekly about his love for bluegrass and acoustic music and the recording of the new album. “Every record I’ve done has always had a bluegrass track on it,” Dierks explains. “You can hear the influence.” Dierks also hopes that country radio will come to accept the new release. “There are a couple songs on there that I think would work,” Dierks tells Country Weekly. “If country radio can lean toward pop or rock, it can certainly lean a little bit towards ’grass.”
